The 40 Man roster in MLB & MLB the Show is important to get right in case of injury and to protect those players from the other 29 teams in baseball from acquiring them for their team. Players who are not on the 40 roster are eligible to be drafted by other teams in the December Rule 5 Draft and you do not want to lose an up and coming prospect or a player who can be a great contributor to your franchise’s success. Following the initial franchise season, in the offseason, I will go into the next season with less than 40 in case a trade needs to be made, a free agent needs signing or a valuable talent finds their way on waivers who can help us get better for that season. I will also address arbitration and how to not lose players as well as tender contracts & the Rule 5 Draft.
